Mshini Wam by Spoek Mathambo was released about two weeks ago and is available for purchase on iTunes!!

The hype on the South African youngster however was there long before the album dropped. The two previous music video’s to the tracks Mshini Wam and Gwababa Gwababa (don’t be scared) had a lot of blogosphere attention.

Strangely enough the video your about to stream, however cool, got a lot less attention but I think that is because there are not many people who know the video to the track war on words is already out. This one is a little bit different from the previous two in the sense that there are more dramatics involved and the very tangible African vibe is kinda absent from this track. Personally…I dig but see what you think…

Told ya we’d be back with some Spoek Mathambo. Strangefruitmusicblog just received word that this youngster will be dropping his album Mshini Wam via BBE records on the 13th of September 2010.

Part of a new breed of African artists, 24 year old Spoek Mathambo (Rapper/DJ and Graphic Designer/Illustrator) is hitting the world hard with his take on Afro-futurism. Spoek sees himself as a part of a new wave of energy in Africa, which is intent on nurturing a sense of progressiveness while maintaining a pride in culture. As front-man for electrorap outfits SWEAT.X and PLAYDOE, Spoek Mathambo has become an increasingly prominent figure in the international music scene over the last couple of years.

The aforementioned is the story so far provided by PR. The Strangefruitmusic take on this is that it is refreshing, new and hot…I guess this is the way you take afrobeat to the next level. Anyways below you can listen and dowload the title track of the upcoming album….enjoy!!
